Irish bagpipes solo, Okeh 4490, John Muller - piano. Ennis and Muller create an unusual sound with their blend of chords. The lyrics were first published in 1842, although some think the mournful tune is of greater antiquity. This is a great favorite with musicians, especially pipers; most aren't familiar with its rather overwrought lyrics, though:
"My Connor, his cheeks are as ruddy as morning,
The brightest of pearls do but mimic his teeth,
While nature with ringlets his mild brows adorning,
His hair Cupid’s bow-strings, and roses his breath."
